uhm...Intel doesn't ship a 64-bit x86 processor. Only AMD is very
publicly trying to do that. If you want to know how linux runs on IA64,
then buy David Mosberger and Stephane Eranian's excellent book
appropriately titled "IA-64 Linux".

You should look at any of the numerous "How-TO write a driver":\_unix/AA-Q7RQC-TE\_html/pcibus3.html

or talks recently presented at OLS by Arjan van de Ven,
Greg Kroah-Hartman, or myself:
